ok, i own these games for my Xbox 360: (joke comes, don't worry, just read on) Halo Halo 2 Halo 3 (soon, was sold out but i surely will get it) GTA IV Lost Planet: Exterme Conditions Gears Of War Gears Of War 2 Limited edition (will get it this friday) Dead Space Call Of Duty 5 World At War and maybe Fallout 3 but just maybe... ok, now comes the joke: I do NOT have an Xbox 360... now do you surely ask if i'm just plain stupid or have gotten a lot of wrong christmas presents, well in fact, neither... I schould've had my Xbox 360 around middle december 2008, but there seems to be a crapload-big delivery problem in Belgium cause there aren't arriving any new Xbox's :confused: got to a few shops, none has it anymore, completely sold out in da whole country...:( now do you ask: 'why da hell do you buy all the games then?' well, simple answer: i did not payed the full price for a single game except a single one (GoW2, Lim. ed.) GTA and Lost Planet where second hand from a video-rental-store who just found out that it is illegal to set games for rent, so they are in optimal state cause he has a disc repair service to! for these 2 games i paid: 65 euro for both! Halo and Halo 2 are from da UK (one is second hand) and have costed me: 25 euro, inc, delivery! Halo 3 is a bit older and when it's back in store i just pay 35 euro! Dead Space and CoD5 WaW come from da UK to for only 80 euro both! GoW1 is a classic series so only 30 euro's for that! and GoW2 Lim. ed. is full price so full 70 euro so i have this crapload of kick-ass games for excellent prices and deals but no Xbox where i can play them upon:rofl: but, maybe he is there this week? or maybe next? i hope so...:rolleyes: has something similar happened to you to? just wanted to tell this thing though, i think it's kinda funny=p

It's amusing. Funny might be saying too much. :p

Or maybe it's just damn unfortunate.

That's a horrible deal, are video games really that expensive in Europe? I got CoD: WaW for only $60 American, and the Euro (last time I checked) was about a $1.35.

no, no, you got me wrong, 80 euro for BOTH Dead Space AND call of duty! (ordered them together) but yeah, games are realy expensive down hear in Benelux (dunno of rest of europe) 70 euro for a single (new) game is the normal price down here so, you see that 80 euro for 2 top-games is a super-duper-deal for me! but i will put the prices here sepperatly so you see it are damn good deals! Lost Planet: Extereme Conditions = 20 euro GTA IV = 45 euro Halo = 10 euro Halo 2 = 15 euro Halo 3 = 35 euro (maybe i get it tomorow!) Gears Of War = 30 euro Gears Of War 2 Limited Edition = 70 euro (i have payed full price here, but i simply had to have it!) Dead Space = 30 euro Call Of Duty 5 World At War = 50 euro so, no more confussion here!

YAY!!! i finally got my Xbox 360!!! i bought it this saturday, but not at the shop where i was waiting for it to arrive, no, i waited almost a full month and he didn't even give me a date for it to arrive so i said screw you! (not litterally :rolleyes:) and i did go to a shop in my friends area where i found a shop who still has some, so i grabbed me a box and sprinted to the cashier so no one would take it away from me! LOL:p then i connected it to the first TV i could find (and wich belongs to me or family) and the first thing i played was Gears Of War 2 horde mode! i managed to get to wave 15 on my own, notice that i didn't own an Xbox before so i have to get used to the controls, example: i want to pick up a Boomgun, i have to press X, notice that i had a PS2 before so out of a habbit a push A, cause on where A is on the 360 is the X on the PS2, so, instead of picking up the weapon i roll right towards a bunch of locusts... LOL:rofl: but the point is: i got ma Xbox 360 and i'm damn happy with it!
